During a semester, we had to design and build it ourselves a street seat next to the University Center, the most important New School building. It is located on 13th street, in Manhattan, New York City. After a few mockups and prototypes, we defined the design and started the production process. Our intention was to create something different and coherent with the needs of the students and of the other users. The tubes with different highs create an interesting barrier, also adding green on the top.

The park was planned in a swamp area, which includes seven water sources. Today it is polluted, and the main objective of this project is to preserve the river and the native florest.
